    OK, I admit it... I screwed up and hope someone can help :'(

    I did some editing on several jail_xxxxx.conf files without backing them up first and must have screwed something up because now several apps fail to load and jail debugging tells me /etc/jail_device.conf can not be found. The file is there, I did not edit it, and it loads fine when included from the jail_games.conf file (one I never modified). However when included from any of the jail files I tinkered with, I get the error.

    I tried to use ipkg manager to force-reinstall jail, but the package can not be found and I don't know where it is. I really just need a copy of the /etc/jail*.conf files if someone be so kind.

    Any help for the careless would be greatly appreciated!

    Here are a couple links for the doctor. You need to restore your device back to factory or you will continue to have problems.

    Thanks very much, but I'm not at the last resort yet. Mostly I'm still up and running and more interested in fixing the broken jail if possible.

    Ideally I hope someone can share a copy of their /etc/jail*.conf files with me, I only edited 5 in total (added a mount line) but in the process I seem to have broken several of them. I pulled out my edits but wonder if as I copy and pasted did I maybe paste some control characters which don't show in the editor?

    Anyway, I do appreciate you referring a good doctor :-)

    You haven't specified your device or webos version. Here you get the files from my veer.

    Oops, great point.

    I'm running a 16 gig TP, webOS 3.0.2

    Thanks for the files, turns out they are too different to solve my trouble but when I replaced the triton-inst and ran my test app I got a different result and figure this is a good sign that I'm on to something.

    Now if some kind sole would just send me the TP v3.0.2 version of the /etc/jail*.conf files I might be able to avoid the doc.

    Why dont you just extract them from the webdoctor-file? After all a JAR is just a ZIP-file. There are some TARs in it from which you can extract every file you want.
